Oregon Athlete Could Be Close To Deciding

The Oregon State Beavers were the first school to jump on board and offer Lake Oswego (Ore.) athlete Keith Robertson and they could be closing in on a commitment. Robertson talked to another Beaver recruit a week ago and he may not be the only one to pull the trigger.

Robertson, 6-3, 220 pounds plays several positions including tight end (#6 rated TE in the West by Pac West) and linebacker but is being recruited by the Beavers as a defensive end.

"They like me as an outside pass rusher but I would really love a chance to play linebacker in college," Robertson said. "Oregon State is recruiting me the hardest by far and I'm thinking about committing early. I like Washington and Washington State too but Oregon State leads. They told me my offer will stay in place until Signing Day but I think I'll decide before then."

Lake Oswego played Pendleton last Friday night and Robertson had an interesting talk with Pendleton's standout offensive lineman Roy Scheuning after the game.

"He was asking me if I was going to commit to the Beavs," Robertson said. "I got the impression that if I committed, he was ready to do so as well. We talked about the two of us joining (Ryan) Gunderson and laying the foundation for a real strong recruiting class."
